Standards for Administrators - Today, standards are the driving force for school reform, as virtually all states move toward some form of standards-driven accountability. When schools set explicit learning outcomes, students, teachers and principals have clear accountability for results. The new standards for students have been accompanied by new expectations for educators. While student achievement remains the ultimate measure of success, professional organizations have made progress in developing the performance standards that should govern the actions of teachers and administrators. This research review evaluates five reports that address standards for administrators, asking how they will affect principals on the job, and if they serve as a concrete guide for daily decisionmaking.
